This chapter addresses the evolution of gay identity in the late 20th and early 21 centurie and the use of appearance to define that identity fronm within the gay community. Rather than fixing their collective identity on a sort of masculine-feminine conundrum, this chapter describes how gay men formed various style-based subcultures in an effort to negotiate what it means to be a gay man in Western society.
